[ coughs, sneezes ]
actors kate bosworth and josh lucas take on an american literary icon in the new film "big sur." >> the film dives into the life of alcoholism. and the relationship with his best friend neal, and josh lucas and kate bosworth, his mistress. it seemed complicated. >> kate's real life husband michael polish, and josh showed up with had its baby. your baby's here and we love him. >> my baby is here because my
baby-sitter did not show up on time. i was racing to be here on time to make that. this movie created two relationships. kate with the director michael and they ended up getting married and my wife fell in love during this movie and there's our son. >> go watch the movie. you better. >> kate, you always wanted to work with your husband, but did you think you'd end up marrying him? >> you know, i've always admired his work, and i signed on to this film because i'm such a fan of his, such a fan that i didn't ever want to leave his side again. >> i love these pictures. is it at all awkward when your boyfriend is the director? how does that work on the set? >> well, we weren't together actually on the movie. we just worked together. no, it's such a natural way to work together. it doesn't get in the way.
it doesn't hinder anything. it only adds to it. >> josh, you said making this movie is magical. >> if you saw the location itself, it's truly one of the most beautiful places on earth. you're taking on this iconic graphic artist in jack kerouac to deal with his own demons. they came together with no money, purely with love. that's probably why the relationships and friendships came out of it. but it was a movie built on nothing but good. and something i think very beautiful came out of it which is it a very, very honorable piece of art. >> were you guys familiar with jack kerouac's work before the film? >> just a little bit. i became more of a fan working on the movie because we had to get to know him, his character, so intimately. >> and your character is in love with him in the film. tell us about that relationship. >> well that was interesting
because it was making its way into the era of the hippie. much more liberal mindset. so my character does yes or no for a family unit, a very conservative way of living yet very experimental in dating these two mens. >> dating both of those men. >> that was complicated, probably, right? >> it was a complicated time. it was a time of relaxation and experimenting and also one where she's yearning for the family unit. >> josh, what do you think the modern day take-away is from this film? >> these were men and people who were breaking boundaries. they were breaking apart from some of the thinking of the 1960s, post world war ii. and moving into artist exploration and free love. but there's both a good and bad that came out of that. there's a sense of great personal exploration that the film tends to understand.
particularly, jack trying to understand his own madness and his own relationships. and to be free and not possessive. >> sure. >> we wish you guys luck with the film. >> it's going to be at the austin film festival, right? >> we were just there. >> thank you so much. chris brown gets arrested. two stars take to twitter for two different controversies. it's in "today's buzz." and if you're an admirer, don't walk away. it may be you, phantom of the week. >> but it's unlikely. [ male announcer ] this is mike.

he has been to these counseling sessions, he's done his community service, but it appears it's not helping. once again, he's in trouble. >> he needs a serious change. >> i think this might be it. >> do you think? >> this could be the big one. julianne hough who we love, such a great girl may have stepped into it with a halloween costume. >> made a terrible choice. her show is "orange is the new black." we love that on netflix. she went for halloween in what some people say is black face. >> it is, right? >> she's wearing very dark makeup. to her credit, she knew immediately this was a terrible choice and sent out a tweet apologizing, taking responsibility, saying she's very sorry. >> to her credit, you almost wish she would have thought of that before she did it. >> this isn't the first time. do you remember when prince harry went out in brittain dressed as a nazi for halloween?

>> see, that's what i love about him. we're so easy to jump. it's nice to take a breath. >> he said, why vilify it. ultimately, he said, this isn't going to hurt barney's or me. but it is is going to hurt a charity that he has a lot of money for for some of the clothes he sells at barney's. >> we have good news. thank god, it's high time. who had a baby, somebody had a baby? or is pregnant. >> we love he's going to be a dad. they announced it. they confirmed it yesterday. they got engaged in january. they've been dating for a couple years. they met in the finale of "snl" a couple years ago. >> how cute are they. >> a baby, if it's a boy -- >> it's done. >> thank you. >> thank you, ladies. all right. are you thinking about taking
